Spring Blooms

4 May

We have lots of things blooming right now!

I was a bit worried the crab apple and cherry blooms might have frozen with our last cold snap, but they look good; although our high winds have since destroyed them.

It’s been really dry this past month, which kind of has me worried for what the summer/growing season is going to be like.

Like I said, it’s been really windy, so it’s hard to photograph those delicate flowers.  I was pleasantly surprised to see one lone bleeding heart.  It was under the magnolia tree I lost in the derecho, and they prefer shade.  I don’t know what’s going to happen there. I guess we’ll see.

The lilacs are beautiful!  I love their scent.

I finally got around to clearing my asparagus patches off.

My plum tree is in really bad shape.  Once again I’m going to try to dig up and replant a couple of the new little ones coming up.

Hopefully, they will survive if I do it while they are really small.

I also forgot to share that my dad finally came and took my lawn ornament.

You might remember that the mower he loaned me lost its steering.  After sitting in my yard all winter, my dad brought out his brand new tractor.

Yep.  That’s how it went back into town.  LOL

Bless my dad, he’s been mowing my yards for me, but I need to figure something out.
